Vince Broesch   I often do 100 mile river trips in Montana. I am the only one in my bunch who does NOT use a canoe. I use a SeaEagle inflatable boat because of my camera gear. It makes a great camera platform, and you have less risk of dumping camera gear in the river. Anyway, be sure you can keep gear dry and that your dry-bags will float. I've always wanted a tri-pod, but have not carried one yet. I always use a polarizer for the landscape shots. Most importent is lots of beer and have fun!

doug Nelson   Carry A LOT less stuff, maybe one zoom and a 20mm lens as a back-up (a 20 would give about 30 coverage on a digital, a very useful focal length). Gear needs to be padded and DRY. Count on going in the drink. A log you don't see in time, a sudden weight shift, companions' horseplay, anything will do it.

  Lowepro makes the Dryzone 100 & 200 waterproof backpacks. There come in 2 colors, one being bright yellow and therefore easy to find. They are also supposed to float. This makes them an excellent choice for canoeing. The 200 is larger and costs about $250 at B&H.
